Stolen MacBook Pro schematics confirm HDMI, SD card, and MagSafe


Yesterday with the launch of the M1 iMac, iPad Pro, and AirTag tracker, it may be a big deal for Apple, but one of Apple’s MacBook vendors didn’t go well. Bloomberg reported that Quanta Computer Inc., Apple’s main vendor of MacBooks, was targeted by a $ 50 million ransomware attack by REvil, a notorious dark web hacking organization.

After refusing to pay the high fee, REvil overcame the threat. As Bloomberg reported, the team “published a schematic diagram of a new laptop with 15 images detailing what appear to be the internal organs of a Macbook designed in March 2021.” Bloomberg did not reveal the contents of the document, but Macrumors, who also saw the schematic after publishing the schematic, said they clearly indicate the new port of the next generation of laptops:

On the right side of the machine, there is a visible HDMI port, a USB-C / Thunderbolt port, and an SD card reader. The left side has two additional USB-C / Thunderbolt ports and a “MagSafe” charging slot for a total of three USB-C / Thunderbolt ports instead of the four we have today.

Macrumors also said: “Leaked images of the new MacBook Pro floating on Twitter also confirmed that the device will not have a touch bar.”

There have been rumors that Apple will return the port and MagSafe to the next MacBook, tweak the design, and remove the Touch Bar. Apple just released a new iMac at the spring event, so we hope to wait at least until WWDC in June to see new Macs.
